About

I am currently a Senior Data Engineer Consultant at Credit Suisse in Zürich, where I lead the development of key risk management tools. My responsibilities include planning the long-term vision, coordinating data acquisition, and building technological infrastructure for various projects. One of my notable achievements is creating a proprietary graph-analysis application to track critical dependencies across several branches, which has improved risk management efficiency. Additionally, I designed and implemented PySpark algorithms to process 10GB of structured batch data daily, as well as a real-time anomaly detection tool in Python and Scala, which enhances data quality monitoring. My technical skills include Java, JavaScript, Python, Spark, Hive, Neo4J, Oracle DB, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, and AWS. Previously, I worked as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Clear Artificial Intelligence Ltd in London. During my tenure, I performed PPE demand forecasting for NHS Trusts using statistical methods in Python, which helped optimize supply and reduce costs during the first Covid-19 wave. I also developed a recommender system for Nestlé Canada's online store, boosting B2B sales by 25%. My role involved utilizing Python for various machine learning applications, including collaborative filtering and content-based approaches. My technical expertise includes Python, JavaScript, Spark, Hive, Neo4J, PostgreSQL, Docker, and Google Cloud Platform. I hold an MBA from the University of the People and a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Bari Aldo Moro, complementing my extensive experience in data engineering and machine learning.

Best back-end engineers I've ever worked with...​

“I interviewed about a dozen different firms. DevsData LLC is truly exceptional – their backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, locally in San Francisco, and remotely, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. “
